This article is about the baby chinchompa. For the other pet obtainable via Hunter, see Herbi.

The baby chinchompa is a skilling pet that can be obtained while catching any kind of chinchompa. The chances of getting it are dependent on the player's Hunter level.

When a player receives the pet, it will automatically try to appear as their follower. At the same time, a red message in the chatbox will state You have a funny feeling like you're being followed.

However, if a player receives a pet while having a follower out (for example, a cat), it will be placed into their inventory. When this occurs, the message in the chatbox will instead state You feel something weird sneaking into your backpack. If a player's inventory is full and they have a follower already, they will not receive the pet.

On death, if a player loses their pet (as a follower or in your inventory) it will wander around for 30 seconds before disappearing completely.

Players can pay a one-time fee of 500,000 coins to Probita in East Ardougne to have this pet insured. Should the pet be lost while insured, it can be reclaimed for 1,000,000 coins.

Drop rates[edit | edit source]

Colours[edit | edit source]

Players can right-click "Metamorphosis" to randomly change the baby chinchompa's colour between grey, black, and red. When changing colours, there is a 1/10,000 chance that it will change into a gold colour. When attempting to metamorphose a golden baby chinchompa, a warning is displayed with a yes or no option. The chinchompa will retain its gold colour if the player logs out or adds it to or retrieves it from a menagerie. However, should a player die with a golden chinchompa, the pet will no longer be golden when claimed from insurance.
